Bruce Springsteen performs ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’ for Joe Biden’s inauguration

Bruce Springsteen Sings 'Land of Hope and Dreams' to Mark the Inauguration of American President Joe Biden

The first started with Bruce Springsteen.

Other standout moments included Dave Grohl's personal shoutout to "all of our unshakeable teachers that continue to enlighten our nation's kids every day" prior to Foo Fighters' performance, and John Legend's stellar piano rendition of "Feeling Good" in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry and the President himself; a bunch of stars met Wednesday night in Washington to celebrate the inauguration of Joe Biden, an evening without an audience, broadcast on major American channels and closed with fireworks.

"Over the last few weeks, over the last few years, we have seen a deep division and a worrying bitterness in our country, but tonight we are thinking about the United States of America", says Hanks.

"As I said earlier today, we have learned today that democracy is precious and that democracy has prevailed thanks to you."


"For some, inauguration is a tradition, an act that signifies adherence to a four-year mandate". "Yet, in truth, inauguration day is about much more than the swearing in of our next national leaders".

Springsteen is among the artists featured on a 46-song inaugural playlist recently released by President Biden and Vice President Harris, which you can listen to HERE.

Toward the end of the program, a pre-recorded joint letter was delivered from former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. "I wanna offer this small prayer for our country".

Springsteen opened the show by performing his hit song "Land of Hope and Dreams".
